July Club

Hi everyone, it's time once again.   I hope you are enjoying the nice weather.   I have pictured below our layout that we are focusing on for our club this month.    We will be using 3 - 4 x 4 pictures and 1 - 4 x 6 horizontal and 1 - 4 x 6 vertical picture.   

If you know me well, I always emphasize journaling.  However, many of you tell me you don't like your handwriting and you don't want to take the time to type it out. are not off the hook yet.    We will be learning about hidden journaling.  You will write your information on a tag and slip it behind a picture.   Easy, peasy as they say.   

Also, I have been lacking inspiration lately so I googled scrapbook sketches, found one I liked and then modified it.   That is the sketch we will be working on this month.    

Here is the sketch:

Now here is my take on it:    On the below layout I followed it somewhat closely but did not add all of those arrows (we will use a punch that I have).


The hidden journaling is behind the picture where there is a close-up of my youngest daughter Paige on the far right hand corner.

On the next layout I decided to round the corners for a softer look.

One of the best tricks I learned, is that once you know a layout well, just do some more pages with the same layout because it goes much quicker.  I also added some bling to the arrows.
A close up of the journaling once again and this time I pulled it out so you could see it more.  I used washi tape to decorate the top of the tag.
